Shading on Solar PV Array

If the solar array is shaded in any way, its power output will be reduced. If there is continuous shading at the same position on the solar modules, the modules can develop ‘hot spots’ that can damage them permanently. Incidental shading is not static, as it moves throughout the day and year, following the sun’s […]

You may wish to seek further information from somewhere else. Solar Alone This configuration is one of the most straightforward, commonly deployed, and cost-effective designs. […]

Is Solar Water Pumping the Winner?

Bearings must be selected based upon the loads and service conditions they are likely to encounter. Incorrect sizing and selection of a bearing may lead to bearing failure.
